neither line style not any of the textline properties can get change in a note-anchored line (and the latter don't make much sense, but the former surly does)

Title note-anchored line can't get styled (dotted, dashed...) note-anchored line style applied incorrectly
Priority P2 - Medium

Actually, if you zoom way in, you'll see it is being applied, but the gaps are way too small if the line is anything but completely horizontal. Yet somehow other text lines are able to draw diagonal dashes with no problem. The one difference I know of has to do with when in the process we perform the layout - note lines are laid later than other lines because they can cross staff.

It's possible this is related to #287770: Weird beams. Something about drawing of diagonals not working correctly for things that are laid out during page layout rather than system layout. We've had other similar "jagged beam" reports. I don't really understand why layout order should matter since drawing is the same in all cases.
